It’s not enough to just be right if we want God to use us to reach people with the Gospel. Our rightness only serves ourselves if we alienate people by our attitude and choice of words. Failure to show interest in people as individuals comes across as an attempt to propagate one of a myriad of doctrines and treating people as another notch on our belt.
We live in a world where many are talking, but few listening, all while broken hearts cry out, “Does anyone hear me?”

Topic: Why is it so important to answer not only the question, but also the questioner?

On Tuesday December 3rd, at 9 p.m. Eastern I will once again have the privilege of being the live victim, oh, I mean interviewee, on #PJNET Live with Coach Mark Prasek. Click Here PatriotJournalist.com Then click “Enter Here,” to watch live.
Bonus! Award winning author, speaker, teacher, Del Duduit follows at 9:30 p.m. ET. on #PJNET Live! Del is bold, thought provoking, inspiring and entertaining, whether the topic is sports, politics, culture,
or the Christian faith. Check out two of his new book releases, First Down Devotions and Impossible Faith. His books make great Christmas gifts, as do the other books in my sidebar and on my resources page.
(I’m working on the drop down menu and adding more resources.)
And Two More Writing Awards!
You know how the Bible says all things work to the good of those who love God? In this case sidelined roadside in a broken car led to a 3rd place Ohio Christian Writers Conference (OHCWC) Blue Seal Award for the resulting devotional. —Thank you Serious Writer and OHCWC!
—You may read GPS – God’s Positioning System here.
Jerry B. Jenkins —Watching three years of your Manuscript Repair and Rewrite classes in the Jerry Jenkins Writers Guild helped me get the word count down from over 2,400 to the required under 1,500 for this contest. It was so hard as I also needed to preserve the tone of the piece. I didn’t think I could do it, but recognized it as a good writing exercise and determined to keep going until I could go no further. Twelve minutes before the deadline I submitted my article at 1,498 words. Thank you, Jerry!
Humbled and grateful for the call to write for God.
—I will post the updated version of Welcome to My Dysfunction that I submitted to the contest at a later date. 🙂
Hoping to have a new and unusual blog post up for you in the next day or so. In the meantime, don’t forget to read my article on RZIM Connect’s site here: Answering the Questioner
Thank you for joining me on the journey. God bless you.
